Hey guys. I finally installed my Reaper Body Wrap on my Proline Ford Raptor Flo-Tek. I'm going to do a little writeup on this install as best as I can. I'm really digg'n this.
Body of Choice ( I used Proline Ford Raptor Flo-Tek )
Body Wrap ( I used AMR Racing Body Wrap ) This is some thick stuff!!!
Paint of Choice ( I used Black )
Scissors ( Curved &/ or Strait )
Little bit of Patience =)
I started out with the usual preparation. Scuffed up the inside of the body with a Scotch brite pad. I stay away from the windows as I like them clear. I like to see my goodies inside. Next I clean the body with a mild soap and water, rinse it all off and let air dry over night or two. Only because I have a wonderful son, daughter and wife I enjoy spending time with. So I end up taking a few extra days to do things. LOL I then put the window mask tape on, usually what comes with the kits. Making sure they adhere with a good seal around the edges. I then shake the rattle cans for a good 5 minutes and spray them off to the side to get the paint flowing. I paint the first layer really light, especially around the windows so they get a good seal. I paint the next couple of coats a tad heavier. 3-4 coats are my usual and works. I've never had any chip or crack, so I must be doing something right. I let this dry for about a week. Only because I didnt have a chance to get to it any faster. Here are some pics of the body painted black. Sorry for the dark shots, I have to be kind of a night-owl to get to work on my truck, as mentioned earlier.
